Slow Logon - Desktop Window Managerwas unable to start because a composited theme....
I have a class of machines which all logon a user on extremely slow. After looking at the logs I can see that something called the Desktop Windows Manager is failing.
"The Desktop Window Manager was unable to start because a composited theme is not in use"
"The Desktop Window Manager has exited with code (0x40010004)"
This takes around 2+ minutes and I'm not sure whats going on as Aero does work when eventually logged on. I assume the Desktop Window Manager is for aero, isn't it?
I have tried trying to set a theme using gpo and tried it without. Still no difference. Googling has not helped so far.
Please can anyone help.
